Meeting someone when you are dating in your forties is much different that dating was before I got married. Women seem to know exactly what they want in a man and what they want from a man. Experience has taught people that it is not worth it to waste time. People know very early on if this person is worth dating and seem to sense the chemistry early on. One woman even told me that after the first 5 minutes of meeting someone she knows if she would be willing to sleep with that man. Dating sites have helped considerably in getting dates. But, dating can seem to be more of a job interview than a date. There are the questions, and there is the “check list” ….does he like her looks…. does she think he makes enough money….does he drink too much….are those lips worth kissing…But in the end our goal of happiness is sometimes blocked by the hoops we expect our potential date to jump through. I like to enjoy EVERY date, even if it will be the only one with that person. There is always something interesting to talk about and many times there is something to learn. If the dating does not continue you will feel at least that you took something from that date and it will become a positive experience.
